At the turn of the century, an idealistic schoolteacher who has just finished his training arrives in the small town which is to be his territory. There, he finds a smug factory-owner, who has cleared out an old barn for a schoolhouse -- for children who have already worked eight hours each day in his factories. Incensed at the whole situation, the schoolteacher allies himself with a local priest to build a proper schoolhouse. He then gets involved with labor protests that bring about a better situation for the children.
